Low visuo-spatial IQ but very high numeric and verbal IQ

Still, at least he got to say "visuo" (I think I have one of those TVs!).

ghost_of_pushwood, of all the times that I have tried to create topics for humour this is the one time I was actually serious and you totally missed that. This could have turned out to be a fine intellectual discussion.

Quite. I was about to post the definitive answer to this but now I'm not going to in case ghost_of_pushwood pokes fun at me.

Don't know why you would worry about what kind of iq matters or not. You have to work with what you have.

It's easy to miss seriousness around here...

In the three perceptual channels, kinesthetic, visual, and verbal, everyone is dominant in one.  A weakness in either of the two is not significant.  Actually, if you are verbal, the chess literature gives you an advantage in learning.  All the elements mentioned above by posters are important in chess, part of what makes chess so intricate.  But strong players did not get that way from working on what they know as strength, but they work tirelessly on their weaknesses.  That is why they are so good.
